I seriously need to know something if anyone can help.. Well, I started my treatment today. I am pregnant and the doctor put me on subutex. I have medicaid so I pay nothing out of pocket, thank God because I don't have good money.. Okay so he wrote my first script today. 14 for a week. I live in WV. so it's WV medicaid. Soooo, I had to get my medicine "pre authorized" through my medical insurance... I couldn't wait because I felt soo bad, so I got 2 out with cash until they got approved.. Which thankfully, right before the pharmacy closed, they got approved but I'll have to get them when they open in the morning! Now.. My question IS, will they have to approve me medicine every time I get my prescription?? Thanks in advanced!! :?:

My guess is that you won't have to have that authorization every time a script goes in for suboxone. I had to get a prior authorization for suboxone too, but I haven't had any problems since. I think it's good for the entire year.

Hi, first of all many congrats on taking the first steps of the journey through recovery and your new life. Second, when I was first on suboxone it was through my state's healthcare, also Medicaid, and I remember that I had to get pre-approval for the prescriptions every month or so. But that was back 2009 so thing's have probably changed. I do not think they'll make you jump through the pre-approval hoops every time, though. More likely it will once a year or so.

Not sure but I think you have to approve your medicine every time you get your prescription. Better consult your doctor to avoid any discomfort in future.

It just depends on your insurance, I know for sure you won't have to get it approved everytime u fill ur script but like I said it's different with differnt insurances, I have WellCare and mines approved for 3 months then my dr will have to do another pa but some other insurances might be a year or 6 months but I do know that's it won't be every time you fill ur script.
